Very solid bass with a through body thin fast neck. I purchased mine used and there wasn't a scratch or mark on it. Still had the film on the pups! It was a little twangy out of the box but the active EQ made it useful until I could put my favorite strings on it and tweak it to my liking. Got to give it five stars for the price I paid for it, but even at retail price you get a lot of bang for the buck. Would recommend as a solid backup for your primary.
